A splendid reading of a splendid tale about growing up in a small, Irish, seaside village. Ever the storyteller, Maeve Binchy creates a delightful cast of characters, who move between homespun small-town life in Castlebay and university life in Dublin. The author's daughter, Kate, brings her considerable theatrical experience to this reading, rendering every character to perfection. Each character speaks with just the right Irish accent for his or her position or social standing. At the same time, Kate has a fine ear for emotional pitch--imbuing each with an appropriate amount of passion. This gem of a book is a natural for audio--and not to be missed. R.B.F.
